Adam Schiff recently argued Republicans have no reason to call him as a witness.
He went further and claimed if they do call him as a witness “they have made the decision to not take this process seriously.”
“Look, if the Senate wants to call me as a witness, then they have pretty much made the decision not to take this process seriously. I’m not a fact witness. I was a chairman of one of the committees doing an investigation. I’m not in the shoes of a special counsel, I don’t work for the Justice Department. All I can relate is what the witnesses in the open hearings and that’s no reason to call me as a witness,”
